Hi!

I'll start with mine... or one of mine's most favourite - Shigeru Ban, Japanese architect. I think I'll try building some of his work when I'll catch some time.

I don't know that guy you mentioned Matija. Must hit the internet. I put Frank Lloyd Wright at the top of the list in my head. I like older buildings mostly and some modern stuff. Louis Sullivan and the Saarinen's both rank high with me. There's a Louis Sullivan bank about 70 miles from me in Owatanna Minnesota that is one of the best rooms in the world. People come from all over the world to see it. You can see some nice pictures at the link.

Anything Prairie School is cool. Bruce Goff is another guy to check out. Wild stuff with rocks and bent metal. Yet I'm not a big Frank Gehry fan. I liked the guys from the International Style. That's Villa Savoye by Le Corbusier up in the corner of this page. That style really translates to bricks very well.

see ya

He is famous for his buildings made out of paper. And his pure white houses, where each one has a completelly new, and extremely simple idea inside. Like a curtain wall house (http://www.shigerubanarchitects.com/SBA_WORKS/SBA_HOUSES/SBA_HOUSES_15/SBA_Houses_15.html), or my favourite - http://www.shigerubanarchitects.com/SBA_WORKS/SBA_HOUSES/SBA_HOUSES_28/SBA_Houses_28.html

Have you seen my villa Savoye by Corbusier? When you mention him, check it out. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/61160

I also like Saarinen a lot. And Calatrava. Some of his work would be very nice in LEGO too. Maybe complicated though, but it would be a chalenge.

Marianne Cusato. I haven't checked out the rest of her work, but her Katrina Cottage 1 is enough to win her a place in my heart:

That would be my choice for every day living, not just emergency shelter :-)

Two of my favorite Architects would be Frank Lloyd Wright and Santiago Calatrava. My favorite Architecture Firms are SOM and Morphosis.

I like Louis Sullivan, Frank L Wright, Minoru Yamasaki, Stanford White, etc.

One architect that I like is somewhat overlooked because he was a pragmatist rather than a visionary. That man is Albert Kahn. Because he would design in any style the client wanted, he is not given the respect accorded to those who developed their own unique style. Despite this he was very important because of his factory designs that revolutionized 20th century industry and influenced the Bauhaus movement in Europe. He also, far more than any other architect helped win WW2 by designing huge plants in the US to produce massive quantities of tanks and aircraft. His architectural practice also designed over 500 factories for the Soviet Union in the 1930s which certainly contributed to that country's ability to defeat the German invasion. That fact that he designed factories, homes and above all the Fisher Building in Detroit shows how versatile he was.

Well, how about Antoni Gaudi? ;-)

I'll second that. Gaudi must not be forgotten. Kind of hard to reproduce his buildings in Lego, though.... The contemporary work of Zaha Hadid is inspiring. Thanks for adding me, by the way :-)
